The “Science 4 all” project is focused on exchange of good practice in teaching and learning science and mathematics subjects as well as their coincidence with labour market and entrepreneurship. We are going to emphasise possibilities of effective learning and working within the European Union, especially for pupils from disadvantaged areas. Students will increase competences and motivation through participation in innovative learning activities, exploring the labour market using maths, science, technology and appropriate use of modern technologies. Common work of project teams allowed to set objectives of the project and methods to achieve them:
Obj.1. To enhance professional skills of partner schools teachers.
a) implementing cross-curricular and problem-based teaching;
b) integrating new technology into teaching and learning;
c) enhancing teaching through innovative pedagogical ways, including labour market requirements.
Obj.2. To increase pupils competences and motivation in science, mathematics and entrepreneurship.
a) participation in innovative learning activities;
b) exploring the labour market using maths, science, technology;
c) appropriate use of modern technologies.
Obj.3. To improve social, cultural, intercultural and language skills in the partner schools.
a) knowing partner countries and Europe better, including its diversity;
b) improving foreign language skills,
c) strengthening intercultural awareness in European dimension.
Implementing cross-curricular and problem-based teaching, integrating new technology into teaching and learning and teaching through innovative pedagogical ways, including labour market requirements will allow teachers to enhance professional skills. Thanks to the project activities, including transnational training, teaching or learning ones, both pupils and teachers will improve social, cultural, intercultural and language skills, know partner countries and Europe better, improve foreign language skills and strengthen intercultural awareness in European dimension.
Partners will organise events or competitions in the field of science, mathematics or labour market, professional development events/workshops for teachers of partner schools and video-conferences between project partners. Teachers will plan and conduct innovative lessons based on good practice in partner schools and recommendations of educational institutions. Thanks to rules of new mathematics contest wide groups of pupils will become motivated to learn this subject. Pupils will also participate in workshops or events organised by educational or science institutions, labour market guidance, counselling and coaching, as well as workshops on “Entrepreneurship and economy”. They will plan and do science experiments. School communities will have the opportunity to see exhibitions on mathematics, science or professions in school halls. Besides the results mentioned above, the many outputs will also be produced for example
• “Weather stations” built near partner schools and an educational project on weather in partner countries,
• Films “24h of my life in 2 minutes”,
• Mini-dictionary with basic terms in language of the partner schools and languages of some other nations attending to schools,
• e-museum on mathematics, science and professions,
• Videos “Scientific experiments”,
• “Dream story of my life” - a collection of imagined students’ biographies.
